Maipo River

Río Maipo

The popular tourist zone of “Cajón del Maipo” is situated in the mountain ranges of Santiago. In its river, people can do rafting and kayaking. “Cajón del Maipo” is located 70 kilometers (43 miles) from the capital city and it is easy to get there. The only requirement to do rafting is the desire because the river has a Class IV difficulty level in spring as well as in summer.
